Yesterday we were all shocked to hear of Robin Williams’ death. I guess it was because it seemed so sudden and unexpected.
I think death makes us feel helpless and inadequate. Our lives are basically on “auto-pilot” until all of a sudden someone dies and we remember that life doesn’t stay the same forever—people die and one day we will die too.
Sometimes a person’s death makes us wonder if there’s something after death— do we just live for a few years then get buried in the ground and that’s it? Or is there really a place like Heaven?
I’d like to think that we go somewhere else after we die. I try to imagine what Heaven will be like— a place with no crime, no illnesses, no fear, no frustrations, no sadness, no gossip, no bullying, no negativity, no phoniness, no hatred, no hardships, no “keeping up with the Jones,” no pressure, no anxiety, no evil.
The Bible tells us that the only way we can go to Heaven is to cling to Jesus Christ and to acknowledge Him as our Lord and Savior: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
I hope to see many of my friends and family members in Heaven.
